Felt like a club batter in front of Yuvraj Singh: Virat Kohli

They added 136 runs till the 25th over before Dhawan got out off a Shadab Khan full-toss. When the match resumed, Pakistan were set a daunting 289 run target from 41 overs. I am not playing in place of anyone, it's just the requirement of the team based on the conditions on offer. This was Rohit's first game of worldwide cricket since October, and although this 71-ball half-century was not his most fluent effort, it helped lay a strong foundation. Read More »
